it goes both ways. Card companies know people will spend the money in hopes to get that big hit and then turn around and sell it to make money.
In the end, we are all making money.
I could easily buy a case of 2012 Bowman right now if I wanted to and see if I get big hits but I'm not THAT crazy. I'm happy spending $60-$200 on hobby boxes, or even $50 for a pack of Tribute. It's a sick thrill.
Look at it this way(and this is how my wife got hooked): Would you rather go to the casino and lose $150 at slots/tables and be pissed or buy boxes and packs to get hits to make a profit? Plus cards are an investment. Losing money at the casino? Not an investment.
